. resignato. >> i'm going to go back to transit issues. i think we need to double down on being a transit-first city, which means improving muni, so it's a viable transit option for everybody. i agree with increasing bike access and even experting with sunday streets, which is closing off a lot of your streets to car traffic. i think it's a great model, but i also think we have to do the simple things like fix the roads and sidewalks. there are a lot of places in district 5 where the sidewalks are in disrepair. i have had several friends who have tripped and fallen, but really who that impacts the most are the elderly and the disabled, who have a hard enough time getting around, let alone if the sidewalk is messed up. transit issues are important and i would like to see those things worked on and that is what i will do as supervisor. >> miss olague? >> as supervisor i have been working on many issues, so it's really difficult for me to prioritize any one set of issues. so we have been prioritizing transit issues and affordable housing issues. and the rest of it, but right now i believe the c
, that if we truly want to be a transit-first city, muni is never going to be enough. even if we had another $100 million a year to invest in making muni the kind of service that we all want it to be in terms of reliability and consistency, it would never meet all of the transportation needs of our citizens and our visitors. and if we truly want to see significant movement in terms of reducing the number of private car people make, in terms of getting people able not to have private vehicles to actually give up those vehicles, we have to have, number one, a reliable cab service which right now we don't have in san francisco. and number two, we have to have very, very robust car sharing. and that means traditional car sharing and the newer kinds of car sharing that we're seeing. and we need to make sure that the regulatory scheme actually supports that. and right now we're seeing some car sharing services that are experiencing problems with the california p.u.c. we need to make sure those services have a path to being acknowledged as legal and appropriate. we also need to make sure that we're
if it's possible or not. but i think we should require nert training. we're in a city that the first-responders, even if you had a gazillion firefighters, first of all, most of them don't live here unfortunately and secondly we're going to need all of us when it comes to a big earthquake. when you get this training they say 80% of the people will be needing to be helped. very minorly injureded and then we'll have the training to help them. so i think that would be a really awesome thing if we could all be nert trained and require it. >> mr. resignato, is this time card 3 or 4 for you? >> this is 3. >> from what it sounds like, Û: think i need to become a nert, because i'm a nerd already, but i could become a nert. i love the prevention questions. keep them coming. i'm passionate about prevention. there is a simple thing to make sure that when our earthquake hits we can do what is called "shelter in place." we can keep people in their homes. basically we have lot of multi-family homes with soft understories with a garage, but there is a lot of weight on top. what happened in the
. the first is the drafting of a request for the city attorney to work with my office on reassessing the public notice requirements for building permits issued in areas pdr zoned 1b. this zoning category was specifically designed during the eastern neighborhood process to designate buffer -- specific design during the process to designate buffer zones and heavy industrial uses and adjacent uses in the bay view. recognizing there is unique relationship in the areas and residential neighborhoods are directly across the street. unfortunately with the demolition of one portion of the property this weekend myself and my constituents discovered there is no public notifications in these zoning categories to alert folks to major demolition or construction work that is taking place immediately adjacent to them. i look forward to working with the planning department as well as the city attorney's office and the neighborhood to create this to address the buffer zones so they have the opportunity of opportunities taking place. the second item that i have today is in cosponsorship with mayor l

(applause). >> thank you, judy, very much for that introduction. good morning, everyone. >> good morning. >> it's great to be here at the san francisco chamber and of course the center for economic development here, your breakfast for 2012, it's my pleasure to be here. i
the first roles monument. the way city spread changed with the invention of the cable car. >> people know in san francisco, first thing they think about is, let's go >> good morning and welcome to the [inaudible] services committee, my name is sean elsbernd. (audio very low and unclear). >> the first hearing is a liquor license on hyde street. >> i'm with the police department. the applicant has filed an application with the california department of alcohol beverage control, beverage license type 42, this is an on-sale beer and wine for 1059 hyde street, the california department of alcohol beverage control seeks the determination from the board of supervisors for the approval or denial. the police calls for service on june, 2011 to june 2012. the police reports during that same period, there was no record [inaudible] this premises is located on plot 542, this is a high crime as defined as -- this high crime is defined as 250 or more reported incidents. they shall be permitted only fwaoen the hours of 12 noon and 11 p.m. each day of the week, the sale for on-sale consumption is completely
the blight of yellow page phone books. at that time the one federal case in the issue decided that the city of seattle with a camperable ordinance was able to do it under the first amendment. last week a circuit panel undid that case and they're in the protections and i disagree with the reading and to the polluters that litter on your footsteps and based on the same logic as the citizens united ruling and considers the corporate super pacs the same as real people but with our city attorney i am introducing legislation today and suspend our pilot programs until we see if seattle's law is consistent with the first amendment and i am working with the city attorney to find alternate approaches for the same goal. the rest i commit. >> thank you supervisor. supervisor. >> submit. >> thank you supervisor. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you madam clerk. i have several things. the first is my strong support for the neighborhood theater and in the richmond district. i have been supporting the survival of the neighborhood theaters and i am introducing a motion for what the city can do much more to p
it is an issue that affects the entire city. one of the first things i did as supervisor was to call a hearing on how the city works on the abatement of bed bugs and on march 28th we heard from over 100 residents, advocates and affordable housing developers about the impact that this has on people's lives. so, today i'm asking you to support this legislation which would address three main issues. one, the legislation requires the city provide clear and accessible information on how to properly abate bed bug infestation and the rules and responsibilities for tenants, landlords, and pest control operators. two, in doing our due diligence we looked at what other jurisdictions have done to address this issue and decided to include them in our legislation and have decided to include in our ledthtion asian a provision in new york city administrative code. this will require a property owner or property manager to disclose to prospective tenants written disclosure of the bed bug infestation and abatement history only upon request. third, we require pest control operators to report to dph on a monthly
city clinic in launching the first demonstration project of pre-exposure prophylaxis, taking antihiv medicines to prevent new infections. we're studying topical gels, retro microbicide. the way we're going to end this epidemic is through a vaccine, we've controlled other infectious diseases through a cure. we're proud of our staff who contribute to this as well as the many study participants. and i'm just going to close with a quick word about the project. the way that this project came about was actually one of our staff members, janey vincent who is our graphic designer, you'll see some of her beautiful work inside, noticed that there was -- she's hiding. (applause) >> she noticed that president obama had designated part of his stimulus money to nih for the national institutes of health and they were putting a billion dollars to research infrastructure, biomedical research infrastructure, something that's never happened before. she said, you know, we don't have enough space in our section. all of the three units had grown so much that we really needed more space. she said, do you t
roads. we look at what it would take to achieve a nonauto load share of 50%. a transit first goal. we looked at the city's -- and this was the climate action plan in conjunction with the climate action plan process what it would take to achieve the greenhouse gas emission reduction goal, the transportation sector of that, all while trying to maintain competitiveness for attracting jobs and employees. this is an example. if the findings from the climate action plan being worked on in conjunction with the city, you can see that the amount of new infrastructure and level of demand management that it would take to get close to our goals is really not to be underestimated. so, with these goals and needs in mind, we conducted two calls for projects last year. one of them was in conjunction with the regional transportation plan called for projects, it was mentioned earlier. we got submissions, priorities from all of our partner agencies, all of our agencies that operator provide services [speaker not understood] in san francisco as well as from the public. and a lot of what the public is cal
forward for us in making sure we can address the future risks of disaster in the city and i ask for your support. >> colleagues, can we take this item same house same call? without objection, this ordinance is passed in the first read. item 18. >> item 18 is an ordinance amending the planning code regarding the threshold for application of inclusionary a ffordable housing program. >> colleagues, same house, same call? supervisor kim. >> thank you. i just wanted to say a few words about this legislation before us today. as many of you know, this is legislation that follows the housing trust fund charter amendment which our board put on the ballot for this november of 2012. this legislation was really the conclusion of a very long process to build consensus for support to build more affordable housing here in the city and county of san francisco. as you know, we have already tried a few times, both in 2002 and 2006 to pass a bond to create to build affordable housing here in the city. both times and unfortunately those measures have failed. and i think through those efforts, many affordabl
parcels that the city acquired and the developer acquired from the state park that are adjacent to alice griffith. so, that's where the first buildings will go. and as we build those buildings and move the residents from their existing units, we'll demolish those units. we are again trying to mime eyes the off sit relocation. >> it's good to know that. >> we can do that where we have room. we can't always do that, but hunters view and alice griffith give us the opportunity to do so. and, you know, obviously the dense ithv of potrero as well as sunnydale is lower so we have the opportunity to keep most of the residents on-site as we build. * density the big question is the source of the funding. we will move as fast as we have funds to build. and, you know, so, that's always the biggest issue. but for now alice and hunters view are moving along. >> and then i guess the current location, it's sounds like those projects are okay. do we relocate them in county or do people have a choice -- do we try to find them housing within san francisco? how does that work? >> i can't speak for the past
'm going to take the opposite tact. i think the civil grand jury needs to caution itself. this is the first report i have seen where they have started analyzing private business practices. i think the civil grand jury should be about auditing city government. they are now geting into private business. i have some concerns about that, particularly when it's volunteers who frankly are not private business owners and don't necessarily know it. and these concerns really started to grow beyond just getting into private business affairs. the civil grand jury exercising legal analyses and providing legal opinion, which was the biggest concern that i had with their report last year on park merced. all of a sudden you have a report that has the stamp of the superior court and not one member of civil grand jury was an attorney and yet they offer a legal opinion. i think the civil grand jury in a sense needs to check itself and make sure it gets back to its original mission of auditing city government and focusing on all practices and refrain from fashioning itself as a city-attorney or refrain from b
appreciate your good work on this. >> good afternoon, sponsors, i will be brief. first our audit that was released in january, it there were two issues that i think relate to the proposed ordinance. the first is that our audit found that san francisco is falling short of the city's regional assigned goals, particularly for low and moderate income housing. while the city is on pace to meet two-thirds of its overall housing goal, at the current riterate of projection it will only achieve 16% for low-income housing and 25% for moderate income housing by 2015. the second issue relates to written reports that have been presented to the planning commission, which we found do not sufficiently explain how residential projects contribute to housing element goals. the department staff reports contained standardized language when discussing the basis for recommending entitlement approval, including finding that thes project conforms with the project code and enumeration of the housing element and applicable area plans that it advances. it also at the request of the planning commission, the
outside of their communities or out of san francisco. this is the first step of many that this board of supervisors can take to demonstrate that the city has learned lessons from the ills of redevelopment and has intentionally developed a plan to be more conscious of the families fact impacted by redevelopment type of activities. this legislation gives a family that is forced to move a choice in priority to return to the site where their homes once existed. it also begins to rebuild in addition to housing trust between residents and the developer teams charged with redeveloping the site. the high level concept of this legislation do the following: gives households the right to return provided that they have not been evicted. minimizes screening criteria in order to ensure that residents aren't somehow weed out and restricted from the new housing. income eligibility qualifications not be affected theriors city review of any relocation plans and entires [skphrao-eupbs/] with local beliefs. it also required a non-binding recommendation to be issued to the housing authority commission pr
to be city operations and neighborhood services, i'd like to make two suggestions as reported in the examiner, first one is titled fraud hot line for elections and the second one is cancer rate for female firefighters in san francisco, and my last comment, protect the four supervisors, thank you. >> any other members of the public wish to comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. can we send this item forward with recommendation? that will be the order. mr. clerk, any other items in front of the committee. >> there are no more items, mr. chair. >> then with that, we are adjourned.
